Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Yellowish brown, not that big head. Fruity, grassy. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Pretty mild and soft, but not offensive in any way either.

Never mind all these poncey reviews - it tastes nice and is a lovely drop on a Friday night sat in the garden. Plus itís dead cheap if you know where to shop

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a lovely pale gold, with a thin white, short-lived head. Herbal hops and toffee malt nose. Taste is bitter-sweet, but finishes watery and thin. Better on cask.

Nice ale. Dark golden pour with fizzy off white head. Malt and grains in nose. Medium mouthfeel. Malty to start with some hopping as well. Very balanced and drinkable.

HOME 20130731 (50 cl bottle): A clear, golden yellow coloured beer with a good nice white head. The aroma is somewhat sweet/caramel (and malt tones) and a little hops. Not nice is the slightly buttery flavor. The taste is malty with caramel sweetness (at the end even somewhat sticky). An upcoming hoppy bitterness. Finish is caramel/sweet and hops. The taste is also somewhat soapy/higher alcohols and probably a medium-full body (sweetness/buttery). I taste the beer before and then it was better.

Clean golden color, minimal head. Fruity aroma with notes of malt, peach, honey and toffee notes. Taste is dry sweet with notes of malt, citrus, caramel, grain and grass. Finish is hoppy and medium bitter. Medium body and average carbonation.

440ml can pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel and grass. Taste is a light grassy and citrus bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. An easy drinking golden ale with really not much to it. Decent but nothing notable.
